In terms of revenue, VF has shown a 6.5% rise to 2.78 billion US dollars (2 billion euros). The group has had a good quarter and benefited from a favorable exchange rates.

"Led by outstanding performance from the Outdoor & Action Sports coalition, which had balanced growth across all channels and geographies, we delivered strong growth in revenue and profitability," said the group’s CEO, Eric Wiseman, in a statement.



In fact, the Outdoor & Actions sports coalition, which includes North Face, Vans and Timberland, recorded a 14% increase in sales to 1.13 billion euros. North Face posted +14%, with an increase of 30% in its component direct-to-consumer sales, rewarding strategic new shop openings.

For the full fiscal year, VF expects to achieve an 8% increase in turnover and to maintain its gross margin target at 49%.
